Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has bounced back from a difficult start to the season and has now scored four goals in his last two games for the Blues.

Abraham seems to be upping his game and is now in good form, but he didn’t get a call up for the England national team for the upcoming international games.

Despite not being called, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has backed Abraham to do well and break into the Three Lions team.

“I am delighted with Tammy, delighted with his attitude,” Lampard said at Stamford Bridge. “He has a great attitude in training and a desire to score. I thought his all-round game as well was good.

“We are working with Tammy, all the staff, to help little bits of his game where he can be even better. He is very receptive to that. I thought his performance was class. It is everything you want from him and he is unlucky not to have three, I suppose.

“I would have loved it for him [to get called up by England], but he can take a bit of a breather. We can work with him because it is a constant with all the younger players. I think England will come calling.”

Abraham scored a brace against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and the 21-year-old was in awe of how he was treated by the Chelsea fans who gave him a standing ovation.

Speaking after his brace against Sheffield United, Abraham said: “I just looked around the stadium and said ‘wow’. I couldn’t believe it.

“Chelsea fans are amazing. They have always supported me. From a young kid growing up they have always pushed me to get into the first team, and now I am here they have backed me ever since.

“Hopefully now we can start getting some wins for them.”
